In 2009 Dave Dickinson was a professional drummer and owner of a drum store in London. After installing a commercial coffee machine in his shop the drum-buyers soon became outnumbered by coffee lovers. Eventually the drums were moved out to make way for the first Ground café, and a passion to spread the message of amazing coffee began.
10 years on, not satisfied with just supplying his own successful coffee shops in London, Dave made the decision to put all of Ground’s efforts into supplying a wider market of coffee lovers. Today the Ground Coffee Society is focused solely on producing the best coffee in the most sustainable way possible with 100% of our coffee sourced responsibly. We now supply coffee via mail, via our events team to fans at sports events around the world, and via our wholesale partners to cafés, offices and restaurants across the UK.
